Proved that she is fine shape when winning over hurdles at Wexford on Sunday, supplementing the maiden win gained at Tipperary early in the season; former Leopardstown bumper would ideally need further than this, but has plenty going for her, not least Harry Swan's experience and the stable's current form.
